The Department of Computer Science was founded in 1974 as a PhD-only department by Jerry Feldman, a professor who was recruited from Stanford University to start the department. In 1995, the department added a bachelor’s degree and in 2015 a more concertedrecruitment effort began for the computer science masters program.Today, the Department boasts over 600 undergraduates, 40+ Masters, and 70+ PhD students with research ranging from parallel and distributed systems, HCI, AR/VR, artificial intelligence, security, and cryptography.
